Honest John and Gideon by JoJo-Seames Honest John and Gideon by JoJo-Seames
Honest John and Gideon, conniving and cruel canine and cat con-artists from that extraordinarily beautiful, but darkly unsettling film, Pinocchio. I don't think that drawing animals is really a particular strength of mine, but I was happy to have an opportunity to practice with these two. These characters hold a lot of appeal for me; I always have a big soft spot for flamboyantly theatrical villains. Hi-diddle-dee-dee! :D

As per usual, all watercolor.

Wow! So surreal. Did you drink powerful Absinthe before doing this? Anyway Spectacular from a big fan of Honest John the crafty Fox.

I didn't think it was that surreal when I was painting it. Just, uh...rendering the characters in my own style, instead of trying to follow the character models from the film itself. But I'm glad you like it! Thanks for taking the time to look!

I can't believe I haven't ever commented on this! I know they are supposed to look closer to the characters in the Disney movie. They do, don't get me wrong! :nod: But the book comes to mind, too. ;) Awesome work just the same, and many thanks for allowing me to put it in my group, HonestJohnFans.

Cheers!
